Woodside's James Price Point court case delays

Richard Hunter

The West Australian Government has joined a legal wrangle over the controversial James Price Point site marked for a $35 billion gas hub, which has already delayed drilling plans and halted works on areas of potential cultural significance.

A lawyer representing WA Planning Minister John Day appearing in the Supreme Court in Perth said development of the Browse LNG precinct was "a matter of public importance".

Earlier this month Woodside – the project's operator – agreed not to drill at the site and to leave sections of the coast and dunes alone temporarily, following the court action launched by Goolarabooloo man Richard Hunter.
